Advantages of Buses

 Rural buses

Trams are not economic on rural routes – but by freeing up city roads, tram cut the time and running cost of rural buses thereby encouraging drivers to use them

In-City buses

Trams cannot compete on many minor routes, but buses can, and these smaller buses are aided by the tram removing traffic from the main roads that even the small buses want to use at some point. Small buses can be used as feeders to tram stops particularly for the elderly and disabled.
